Famous Hollywood actor diagnosed with cancer

Society A- A A+

Actor Sam Lloyd, best known for playing lawyer Ted Buckland in Scrubs, has been diagnosed with cancer.

A GoFundMe page set up by his family said that in January, shortly after the 55-year-old actor and his wife Vanessa welcomed their first child, a boy called Weston, he began to experience headaches.

Lloyd also lost 10 pounds but assumed this was due to the stress of being a new father.

In mid-January, he attended doctors and had a CT scan which revealed "a mass" on his brain, requiring brain surgery the next day.

The surgeon was unable to remove a tumour, and he was informed that cancer in his brain had metastasized from his lungs.

Further scans showed the cancer was also in his liver, spine, and jaw.

Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence tweeted a link to the fundraising campaign and wrote: "This is Sam. He was Ted on Scrubs. He's a pal. Just had his first baby. Get involved if you can. I am."
